Use it or lose it!

Suffolk County Council (SCC) are withdrawing bus subsidies at the end of September. This means a number of services will disappear and East Bergholt will wave goodbye to the 796 and 94A.

This comes on top of SCC withdrawing free bus passes for new students at East Bergholt High School. Consequently, even more cars will enter the village daily.

There is a faint chance that there may be a last minute review where passenger numbers increase. Please look on line at the timetables and 'spread the word'.

Suffolk County Council Highways - Reporting Problems

Two Parish Councillors recently visited the local Suffolk County Council Highways Service Delivery Centre. The Highways Officers advised our Councillors that the most effective way of reporting any Highways issues is via the County Council's online reporting tool. Any problem will then be picked up and allocated a reference number. The issue will be looked at by an appropriate member of the Highways Team, prioritised, the area will be inspected if considered necessary, and a solution to any required work will be allocated, if considered appropriate.
